The Baltimore Grand Prix is coming Labor Day weekend — and Downtown Baltimore is getting ready!

Roads have been under construction, parts closed, causing traffic nightmares to prepare for the big event. Our city will be hosting for five years — great for Baltimore!

There will be races and practices throughout the weekend, with the big Indy Lights Race at noon on Sunday, September 4, 2011.

There are also many events to enjoy, including go kart tracks (to practice for yourself!), IndyCar Fan Village with driver appearances and autographs, Big Wheel races for the young ones, and remote control car races as well!

A party zone with bands, family fun zone with games, and Budweiser Block Party are just a few of the other activities. Here is a link to the website with all of the details.

A new & cool thing for Downtown Baltimore that will be with us for a few years!

Happy Labor Day!
